There is one mountain overshadowing everything in Sikkim: The Kanchendzonga, the world’s third highest mountain. This trekking tour focusses on the mountain giant.
We start our journey in Darjeeling, the capital of the tea or the queen of the hills. Only after seeing the highlights we will enter Sikkim, the former kingdom at the boarders of Nepal, China and Bhutan. In Yoksum, home of former kings, we start our trek towards the mountain gods.
For several days you will have to hike uphill, gain altitude to get closer and closer til you reach the foot of the Kanchendzonga. The hike is partly quite strenous but the impressive scenery will compensate you for your efforts.
For nature lovers the botanical and zoological diversity of Sikkim is a special attraction: Sikkim is home to over 450 species of orchids and 600 species of birds!
It soars 8586 meters high: the Kangchenjunga. The third highest mountain in the world, the highest peak of Sikkim and India, and, since part of it lies on its territory, the second highest mountain in Nepal. There are so many different ways to write its name: Khangchendzonga (with or without “h”) in the original, Kangchenjunga when translated to English, or simply Kantsch (in German), as it’s commonly known by the more regular mountaineers. But the mountain is much more than just numbers, rankings and different spellings.
Finally you are in the Himalayas. Darjeeling is the Queen of the Hills, a favored destination for the britishers during the colonial time. So have a cup of Darjeeling tea! BF,-,D
If there is still enough time and if you want to you could have a ride on the famous toytrain. BF,-,D
